Delve into the very best of the British countryside and take part in competitions, enjoy a little retail therapy and explore the country sports stands and shows-everything from food to fishing.
A new competition, Fish for a Fortune, will take place in the specially stocked lake at Belvoir Castle. Competitors will be given a time slot in which to fish for a single tagged fish worth £10,000. The CLA Fishing Village has been revamped for this year’s Game Fair with the aim of improving the flow of visitors between exhibitions, grandstand and lakes.
The British Food Village and the Totally Food Show will be adjacent to the Fishing Village and chefs will be cooking special fish dishes.
Also new this year are the activities for 6-12 year olds. The Active Adventure sessions will last for 2 hours and include activities for budding survival experts such as team building, problem solving, camp crafts, fire lighting, shelter building and low ropes.
The Game Fair is for all ages and for anyone with even the slightest inclination towards the countryside.
